@inoreader’s new plan will leave 90% of users unaffected. I am in the other 10% not sure I should to upgrade, it is quite a jump from current $14.99 to $49.99; slash my feeds, & lose RSS feeds; or take opportunity explore other RSS services.
I feel that I get enough worth out of Inoreader and am not yet ready to jump to a full IndieWeb Reader. I still prefer Inoreader to Feedly. Guess I will see.
Liked 👓 I’ve now removed the titles in the RSS feed from posts in the micro category using the_title_rss | John Johnston by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich
This seems like a cool potential way of doing all sorts of things in the IndieWeb space for WordPress. I’m curious what it looks like from other perspectives. I’ll have to think this through a bit… In the end though, it still feels too much like individuals trying to solve problems that should be better handled by feed readers and the platforms.

Replied to Experimenting with turning on comments for a week (Doug Belshaw's Thought Shrapnel)
Hello Thought Shrapnel readers! Some of you have asked over the last few months why the ability to comment on posts is switched off here. Well, that’s mainly because I noticed a general downw…
I agree with John in the hope that the quality of replies from webmentions might be better. My concern with comments is that we are stuck in the past with what constitutes a ‘comment’. The only way to improve that is to write our own future one comment at a time.
Liked A feed for my microcast by john john (John's World Wide Wall Display)
As part of my summer holiday fun with WordPress I though I might create a ‘proper’ RSS feed for my microcast. There are quite a few podcast plugins that would do the job but I though it might be interesting to try a bit of DIY. Back when I started a class podcast at Radio Sandaig I used to creat...
